Movie Info

This grim drama follows a depressed young woman as she struggles to take control of her dead-end life. Her psychological journey's first step is to stop sleeping; she next heeds the dubious bad advice of a cynical, aging director. Both actions empower her to enact her darkest fantasies.

  • disquieting treatment of a dissatisfied Manhattan woman

    May 9, 2006 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • The lead performance by Jennifer Van Dyck is hypnotic and devastatingly real and would have earned an Oscar nomination had the film been backed by the kind of money that usually supports such contenders.

    Feb 23, 2006 | Rating: 4/5
  • A yuppie in a midlife crisis alternates between repression and indulgence in new experiences. Sensual but unsympathetic.

    Mar 11, 2003 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Even by low-budget, indie standards, this is an unusually claustrophobic, self-absorbed work whose commercial prospects are bleak.

    Mar 5, 2002 | Full Review…
  • An astute, thought-provoking film, but the ending left me just as dissatisfied as Lisa is throughout the movie, in her journey to not follow by the rules of today's superficial society.
